Despite Pascual's goalkeeping heroics, Archers fall to Loyola

By Ivan Saldajeno

MANILA--Paolo Pascual is having a career revival with Green Archers, but a late first half goal from James Younghusband spoiled what was a splendid Sunday night for the goalkeeper.

Younghusband struck the lone goal of the match as Loyola escaped with a 1-0 win against Green Archers in their UFL clash at the Rizal Memorial Stadium.

Despite ten saves from Pascual, he failed to catch Younghusband's header in the 40th minute that turned out to be the decider.

Loyola also survived an ejection to Lee Joo-Young as he incurred a red card at the 80th minute.

The win pushed Loyola to solo first place with 15 points on five wins and one loss, overtaking Stallion, who won earlier in the night against Army, on goal difference.
